Ryan Succop’s four field goals gave the Chiefs just enough offense against the Washington Redskins, a team that has struggled putting points on the board all year. It doesn’t matter who it is against, the Chiefs and head coach Todd Haley grab their first win of the year, 14-6.
Tamba Hali’s safety on back up quarterback Todd Collins capped the scoring in the closing minute of the game as Skins’ coach Jim Zorn went with the veteran back up after Jason Campbell failed to do much against the Chiefs. Campbell was 9 for 16 for 89 yards in the half, including an interception on a Hail Mary on the final play of the half.
Succop hit a 39 yarder in the second quarter to put the Chiefs up 3-0. With Collins in at QB, he sparked the team and the crowd long enough for two field goals in the third to take a 6-3 lead. However, Matt Cassel hit Dwayne Bowe with completions of 20 and 16 yards to set up Succop’s tying field goal of 46 yards in the third to make 6-6.
Succop notched one from 46 yards again with just over three and a half minutes to play and then knocked a short one in from 24 with less than a minute to go.
